Toronto named one of the world's most livable cities by New York magazine

Toronto named one of the world's most livable cities by New York magazine

Copenhagen, Tokyo, Berlin ... Toronto? According to New York-based Metropolis magazine, Hogtown can count itself among the world's best cities to live in.

According to the magazine, it based the list on concerns like housing, transportation and culture — maybe they haven't heard about our sweaty subways or soaring housing prices.

Toronto sits ninth on the list above Portland and below Melbourne, a downgrade from last year when the 6ix took the top spot.

Being Canada's only city on the list, positives are sure to follow, and the publication begins by citing Toronto's Under Gardiner project as a key reason it made the list.

Metropolis goes on to note the city's "record-breaking downtown development boom" has lead to a "demand for ... more livable communities."

As for transportation, the magazine cites the positives, recently-renovated Union Station, Toronto's LRT plans and upped cycling infrastructure, along with the negative — the city's "relatively sparse" subway network.
